    Every time I get an e-mail on my Gmail account, it sends me a text message to my cell phone. Is there ANY way of getting rid of this? I checked my Google alerts and there was nothing there. Help!!! :)

    Have never gotten text messages from Gmail ... what does the text say? That you have mail?

    It's from the number 701.

    I replaced phone numbers and e-mails with X's for the sake of the e-mailer haha.

    Pretty weird huh? Every time I get an e-mail...and my e-mail already goes to my inbox on my phone, so there's really no need. I really want to get rid of it!

    Haha it's not an area code though! It's just "701". So weird. The thing is I'm selling this phone VERY soon with the account, and if I can't get rid of these alerts, I don't know what I'm going to do!

    So you checked under Settings -> Filters as well as Forwarding and POP/IMAP?

    Do you have the Gmail for Mobile application on your phone? Can you uninstall it, or at least sign out of it?

    I don't. It's a Sidekick, so no 3rd party apps what so ever haha.
